From the interview Sutter plans on 2 more seasons with a possibility of extra episodes one on or both if he feels he needs them to complete the story.

It will be interesting to see what his next project will be.

Is the title wrong (grammatically, meaning-wise) on purpose? That title means "I received this _______" -- where "this" is being used as an adjective and not a pronoun, so there should be a noun at the end. Even if you changed it to "J'ai obtenu ça" it would mean "I received this" (where "this" is a pronoun) and not "I got this". I'm sure I'm not the only one who knows enough French to spot this. I'm also sure the producers have enough money to not rely on Google translate.

Sorry, I don't watch the show but was intrigue by the title. It's something that perhaps a grade school student learning French would come up with.

Sorry, I don't watch this show so I don't know all the nuances (like maybe someone's kid is taking French in school and

As you've supported, Motorcycle Clubs and French grammar don't mix.

Sutter said either on Twitter or in an interview that yes, the title was wrong on purpose.
I forget the reasoning, if any, he gave though.

Plus the only person who speaks french on the show is a chronic masturbator who had all of his fingers cut off by a Chinese gang that he wronged. Then he was threatened that if he didn't quit his obsessive rhyming his replacement fingers would be sold on eBay. So he took to speaking french.

Doesn't seem unreasonable to me that the title would be grammatically incorrect.

I gotta say that as much as I enjoy SOA, Jax has never been a believable character for me. His scruffy blonde hair and beard, the pants hanging down and dragging behind him, the shirtale hanging out from his "cuts", the sneakers, all make him resemble an older Calvin from the "Calvin and Hobbes" comic. I think the role was miscast.

I'm never going to be able to look at Calvin or Jax the same way again.

Apologies to Waterson in advance, but someone should take the strips of Calvin massacring snowmen and replace the text with Jax's lines from SOA.

Sutter:

Quote:
Charlie (Hunnam) and I both did a lot of research hanging out with these guys in Oakland, there's a new wave of bikers, the prospects are influenced by the hip-hop culture. Guys that really want to be bikers are the guys that feel like they need to wear the uniform. Most of the guys I know, 40-odd-year full-patch members, these guys are on motorcycles all the time, they ride for comfort, that's why their bikes aren't all tricked out, they wear sneakers because they're comfortable, they don't have anything to prove. Especially if you have a death's head on your back, nobody's going to say "Why are you wearing sneakers?" But it's definitely influenced by these kids who are influenced by the hip hop culture, and one of the guys Charlie modeled his character after, who has since been gunned down and killed, was a guy who wore these clean white sneakers
Hunnam:
Quote:
“There was a kid I met in this club who was exactly who I was hired to play. He was the son of a man in the motorcycle club, he’d grown up in the club, every one of his birthday parties had been thrown in the clubhouse. I wear exactly the shoes he wore, the jeans he wore. He had a very powerful impact on me. He was an amazing guy.” And he was shot dead before Sons started production, hence the bullet necklace [Hunnam wears]. “I wear it for him –to remember the flavor he taught me.”

I wonder if San Jose is taking fashion tips from Oakland. In my middle class San Jose neighborhood, 5-10 year old boys are dressing this way while riding Big Wheels and BMX bikes, both with elevated "chopper" handlebars. I would hope that none are watching SOA, but not bet on it - I don't know anyone actually using the "V-chip" on their HDTV.

I suppose each decade has it's own affectations. When my kid was in High School, many of her classmates were getting black imitation prison tattoos.

Carla was Nero's sister.

i hope the mystery of the #2 missing at the warehouse is explained next season. also that the sheriff went up on a hill near a vent to find a gun seemed a bit bizarre but i guess maybe they didnt show the 1/2 hour he faked searching for it?

regardless of tig finally getting revenge he is very correct when he said he was lucky he didnt get popped outside right away. they do have silencers you know. i dont know if i could trust someone that put me that close to death

i am very disappointed clay is alive, nero could easily plop down as the new clay and he would be more fun to watch.

i'm confused as to why otto cannot otherwise communicate and the tongue thing shouldnt be the end of the case. we have mute people communicating all the time in this world. but i guess he cant use a pen because it would be an instrument of death.

out of the entire season the dog scenes were the most horrific things ive seen on tv... i hate when they show #### like that. like dutch and the cat in the shield. it's really disturbing and id rather see a human burned in a pit than what they did to those animals.

It was Otto's way of saying "no comment". If he'd just said that out loud chances are people would still be grilling him. His way expressed his seriousness, leaving it unlikely anyone would ask him any more questions.

It also drove home that any previous testimony he said had no weight, since he's clearly bats$it crazy.

Hopefully we are done with Otto. The tongue thing was ridiculous. I doubt it would slither down the two way mirror.

I was hoping Pope would stick around and Clay would be gone.

I wonder if Clay takes a back seat or is killed in prison early and Donal Logue's character is the main bad guy next year. That'll work.

From the interview, Sutter says Clays character will have to end soon, my guess is a 3million dollar bounty is a good way for that to happen

With 2 seasons left I guess Sutter won't mind killing anyone off (assuming Jax is there till the end though). I do think Clay will go at some point during next season. Hopefully Tara too
